Found this in the paper today. :cry:
As I love this iconic plane and I grew up outside of Hartford CT it hit home. I trust we all share the sadness of the tragedy for both the families, and the preservation of the B-17 bombers

Thoughts and prayers go out to the families of those who lost their lives in the accident, and those still struggling to recover. My brother and I saw and went through Nine O Nine for multiple years at Oshkosh, and the dedication to their mission was nothing short of exceptional. It was always one of our favorite aircraft to see in show center. It is a devastating loss to the close knit Warbird community, and a tragedy for all who support their mission.
